The unconscious wish an operational examination
- 9 Downloads
The operations involved in the formulation and offering of “unconscious wish” interpretations have been examined. The analyst infers his “unconscious wish” hypothesis from his observation of the patient's inaccurate responses, primarily in the affective sphere.

This method omits the inferential “unconscious wish” step and may thus reduce the time and pain required for psychoanalytic reconstruction.
